I am so excited to finally be sharing our kitchen reveal with you!! It has been almost a year since we moved into our home. And while the kitchen reno was completed about 4 months after moving in, it has taken me this long to get the finishing touches all in place. I am finally done with this room I promised Aaron I would be

The before pictures are the listing pictures and they are pretty shocking. My mom, who loves decorating and home design, took one look and said NO to the house ,). But I could see past the slate and the bad colors, and lack of lighting the cabinets were a great style, the space was what we neededI could picture it the way we wanted our kitchen to look.

I will list and link all of the items and colors below. To begin, we tore out the sink, microwave, the flooring, the counters, the backsplash. and the center island/table thing. It was rough living through the demo as I am sure anyone who has lived through a demo will tell you.

I knew the overall feel of how I wanted the kitchen to be a sort of elegant, timeless feel, but still warm enough to feel like a family kitchen. That vision started with white cabinets as I mentioned, the existing cabinets were a great style, so we were able to use them and add a hood and a couple similar cabinets added in places the demo took them out. We then painted the ceilings white and the walls a beige. I went with a herringbone pattern for our light grey subway tile backsplash. One of the things I was most excited for was our full, size farm-house sink and beautiful faucet. I over-analyzed faucets for a very, very long time.

At this point, I was in need of help. I counted on my friend, Erica Bryant, to again help me with the final stretch of this room. She helped me select hardware (which I daily think about how much I love it) and rugs as well as stage my kitchen counters. She does such a wonderful job of understanding my style and always presents me with a couple choices which narrowing all of the hardware choices for me down to 2 was a HUGE help! I struggle with the staging aspect sometimes and I can always count on Erica to bring up ideas I wouldnt have thought of. I also appreciate being able to bounce ideas off of her and have her help re-arrange my current items. When putting this much work and money into a space, it is definitely worth having an expert help!!

If you have any questions on things I did not mention in the reveal, dont hesitate to ask! Thank you for following along!!

  1. Hi Brooke!
    Local reader here we are planning a kitchen reno sometime in the next year or two and I would love to knowwhich contractor did you use? Your kitchen is beautiful and has several elements I’m hoping for our kitchen- marble like counter, white cabinets, wood floors, etc. Thanks for the help!


  2. Hi Cally!! We did it ourselves as in we hired all of the sub contractors. For our subcontractors, we had demolition, painter, counters, floor, tile, and electric (my dad!). I am happy to share any of those subs if you want I would recommend them all! It was a little bit of a circus at times, but it was for the most part manageable!
